Environmental consultants compete for Holmes County job

Tadlock said that their geologists have found a chemical in the soil that could boost their rating by a point if allowed to rescore.

“It would be of no cost to transfer the project to us,” said Tadlock. “It would be a cost-free and seamless transition.”

Pollock stood up and said that she assured the board that the site may be able to be rescored, but she knew it wouldn’t be ranked any higher.

Tadlock insisted that if the board would appoint his firm as the county’s consultant, then they could get that score higher.

“Put your money where your mouth is,” Commissioner Kenneth Williams told Tadlock. “If you can rescore it higher then the position is yours.”

Tadlock agreed with the board’s decision that if Wes Environmental could return with a rescored site evaluation, then they would be the new contracted environmental consultants for the county — a position which is state funded and county appointed.

The board also approved to award Melvin Engineering with the design of Sandpath Road Phase II, which is a sidewalk project.
